Congratulations on your pregnancy! We look forward to helping you adjust to family life when your child is born.
Rest assured that our maternity nurse will give you and your family the best start. She will monitor your recovery and your baby’s health closely. As you get to know your baby, you will find a new routine. We will help you gain the confidence to take care of, feed and get to know your baby after the postnatal period.
Maternity care is the care we provide during the birth and the first 8 days after the birth. The maternity nurse will come to your home to run some medical checks on you and your baby, and to keep an eye on your and your baby’s health. She will help you take care of your baby and will show you and your family how to take care of your child. She will also help you with chores so that you, as a new family, have the time to be together and adjust to each other. She will help you and your family develop a daily routine and will encourage you to rest so that you recover well.
Your maternity nurse also helps the midwife during the birth, be it at home or in the hospital. This is called birthing assistance. In short, the maternity nurse will support you from the minute you give birth to a few days afterwards.
